As a Barclays Master Trading Agreement Negotiator, you will be part of a global team within Markets Legal that is primarily accountable for the negotiation and execution of master trading documentation for Barclays’ client-facing Markets business. Your primary focus will be to draft, negotiate and execute various capital markets contract documentation supporting the Prime Services and Prime Derivatives Services (PDS) businesses of Barclays. Such contracts include ISDA, Futures, and Repurchase Agreement.

Barclays is one of the world's largest and most respected financial institutions, established in 1690, with a legacy of success, quality, and innovation. We offer careers that provide endless opportunity – helping millions of individuals and businesses thrive and creating financial and digital solutions that the world now takes for granted.

At Barclays, we offer a hybrid working experience that blends the positives of working alongside colleagues at our onsite locations, together with working from home. We have a structured approach where colleagues work at an onsite location on fixed, ‘anchor’, days of the week, for a minimum of two days a week or more, as set by the business area (or nearest equivalent if working part-time hours). Please discuss the working pattern requirements for the role you are applying for with the hiring manager. Please note that as we continue to embed our hybrid working environment, we remain in a test and learn phase, which means that working arrangements may be subject to change on reasonable notice to ensure we meet the needs of our business.

Assisting in the prime brokerage, futures, and related financing businesses by drafting, negotiating, and executing capital markets contract documentation

Ensuring compliance with legal, regulatory and documentation risk controls and adhering to associated guidelines and procedures

Conducting independent legal analysis and managing relationships with external counsel where necessary and within Barclays requirements on external legal spend

Advising senior stakeholders of the firm including Managing Directors and Directors in Sales, Trading, Risk, Compliance and Operations with respect to risks and controls

Establishing and maintaining effective relationships with senior stakeholders of the firm to establish client trading relationships and drive business priorities

Providing creative and pragmatic solutions to progress the negotiations, and providing succinct and clear explanations of the legal issues

What we’re looking for:

Experience with legal contract management or negotiation

Bachelor’s degree, or equivalent

Competence in Microsoft Word, Excel, Outlook, and PowerPoint

Ability to communicate clearly and effectively in both written and oral communications, and tailor the approach to the audience and the situation

Skills that will help you in the role:

Experience within Financial Services or a law firm

Where will you be working?
